A Filmmaker's Reflection

This was one of my favorite units of the year. I learned a lot on how to make an imovie and how to edit the videos and how to put it all together. I am proud of my self for sharing this document with others even though it is going to be very hard for people to see my Deep Dark Secret. I wounder on what people might think about it and if they would change there ways with me or if they will change there ways with my mother. The reason for me doing this document is to persuade people that are living with HIV and help them speak out and help them find a cure. As people watch and read my document I want them to think about how can they help find a cure for those who are infected and think about how many young kids lost one or both of their parents from HIV/AIDS.

Thesis of My Document

My document is about H.I.V. I want to do my document about this because I want to connect to young girls and boys that have someone they live with and really care about that are living with H.I.V and how they feel about it. I want to also be able to tell about it because I want people living with HIV to know that there are people that don't have HIV still care and I want to put it out there because I want them to find a cure for it.

Teenage abortions

Many young and even older women have abortions these days. I don't really agree on it but in someways I do. Some people have different perspectives on that, people may think it is not right to kill your baby and hurt a life that could live and some thinks that it good that we have it because when it comes to teen pregnacy or you are not able to take care of your baby you can have an abortion instead of bring a life in this world that you can not take care of.
I have a friend that was 13 years old and came out pregnant and she had an abortion. When she told me how everything happen and how she felt i wounder to myself like wow i would not want to go through anything like that. I think if i would tell this document it would inspire teenage girls that have been through it and if you do plan to become sexual active uses protection.

HIV Document

"I just pray that I make it until he is a teenager. I'd like to die knowing that they can take care of themselves." That is something my mom says to herself everyday of her life as she awaken from bed. My mom is HIV positive she been this way for 14years now. It hurts me a lot to know that she is living with so much suffer inside. People living with HIV may look normal on the outside but they are really dieing on the inside. She got it from my father but she did not know he had it in 1995. I found out my mother had HIV when I was 10 years old every since then I would cry to myself asking myself all kind of questions like "Is she going to leave us?" "Where are we going to go?"
This is not the main reason I am writing this document I am writing this to connect to kids out there living with not only mothers but also fathers or who ever you care about that are HIV positive and see them suffer everyday of there lives because of it. We may not be able to know exactly how they feel but we have some type of feeling for them just watching what they go through. If we meantion this more and put this out there it may help them a little because people living HIV positive will know that even people without it knows how they feel and want to help and hoping for a cure.

Introducing Documentaries) Diana

To make this documentary they had to get Diana and her sister to talk about there problem with HIV and they talked about how they got it what they feel about having it and Diana talked about why she talks about it so much and is not afride to talk about her situation. They where in there home talking about there problems just a regular day but they talked about what they are into and they where siting on there chair and laughing at her baby at the begging of the document. My favorite part was when Diana was crying and when she was talking about why she wants to put her situation out there and the reason for that was that way people can get educated about it and and she want to put it out there into they can find a cure for it. If i where to make this i would talk about one of my family members having it and how i feel about it growing up and knowing how how that person got it. Basecially i would talk about it in a way that girls my age can connect to because i know how it feel.

My introducation to my story...A Young Latina From The Hood By Solleeann Sollivan

I been through a lot through out the year with my family, friends and especially enemy's. I seen and done many things. Things you could not even imagine, when it comes to robbery, shooting at people and people shooting at me and being in jail and teen pregnancy and selling drugs and even seeing people die right in front of me and almost losing my mother. Trust me i been there.
It is not easy being me. My name is..Well, just call me Lumi I am 15 years old, Yes i know very young for all of these things but there are reasons for all of these things. I make very dangerous sacrifices for my family, some people think ``She have her brother, sister and mother why does she do all this, she does it cause she want to.`` No. It not cause i want to it cause my family needs me, my mother needs me. People judge me only based on how my life is outside but what they do not see is what happens on the inside. The inside of me is almost broken in to pieces and i say almost, because even though i been through all of these terrible things i am still young and i know i can turn my life around.

Anne Frank ``The Diary Of A Young Girl"

So, far i have read up to page 13 by the end of the day i need to be at page 25 which i will be because my group needs to be at page 71 by the end of the week. I like what i am reading so far at first when i started i said i did not like the book but i knew i was going to lead up to it. I do very much like this book and there is a lot of supriseing things i read so far.
A boy name Harry likes Anne but he used to go out with a girl name Fanny but he broke up with her because he felt they was not right for each other. Harry`s grandparents really don`t agree with the fact that Anne and Harry is together because they feel that Anne is to young for Harry but Harry really likes Anne and do not care what his grandparents really think. Well, where i left off was at when Harry goes to see Anne and they walk around with each other and he doesn`t bring her home into 10 o clock and Anne`s father got a little mad because It was very dangeres for Jews to be out no later then 8 o clock. Well i am finish writing for now back to my reading... I will be sure to tell everyone about this amazing book i am reading in Ms. Johns class.
